Lemony Orzo “Chicken” Soup

Yum, I love this soup! It is roughly based on a Greek chicken orzo soup I had several years ago. Of course, this soup involves lots of lemons!

I started off the soup base with some chopped garlic, veggie broth, greek oregano, and lemon juice. While that came to a simmer, I zested and juiced the lemons, which are added at the very end to add a burst of fresh lemon flavor.

While the orzo was cooking, I added some veggie “chicken” chunks to the soup to absorb all the flavors. Once the orzo was done, it went into the soup along with the lemon zest and lemon juice. I also added a little cornstarch to give the soup some body, and lots of freshly ground pepper. The soup tasted fresh and comforting all at the same time!
